First £50 million for grammar expansion

Date: 05.12.2018

The 16 schools which have been awarded extra funding for expansion, receiving the first £50 milllion (of £200 million), have been named. They are required to improve access to more socially deprived students. 

They need to - between them they average only a quarter of the typical number of Ever6 students in secondary schools.

Do they need the extra cash? On average, thay have normal efficiency, according to the DfE's metric. But Colyton Grammar School is in the lowest decile for efficiency - that means that compared to 50 similar schools it's in the bottom 5.
